‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬: How to Live an INSPIRED Life: Yoga is about wholeness, health, and vital living. It is about a life inspired in body, mind, and spirit. Through movement, meditation, discussion, and journaling, we will explore the vast resources related to How to Live an INSPIRED Life by focusing on the last three ‪#‎Niyamas‬ or personal practices that comprise the Alchemy of Yoga. from the Yoga Sutras (Chapter 2, Verse 1), “Tapas svadhaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga,” they transform us on three levels through Physical, Mental, and ‪#‎Spiritual‬ ‪#‎Alchemy‬. These are necessary for bringing about real, lasting change and cultivating inner happiness and spiritual bliss.

Experience the alchemy of the five elements, the four directions, and the chakra system as an inner and outer map of transformation. These are archetypal and energetic maps that are as metaphorical as they are very real and embodied. Everything we see, taste, touch, feel, and do can be interpreted through the gateway of the elements, directions, and chakras. We will learn how to tap into these sacred relationships and align ourselves with their alchemy in order to gain insight into healing our world. Learn more here.

Choosing a Yoga Teacher Training Program

There are many variables when choosing a teacher training program in general and even more so as a destination program in places like Bali or Costa Rica.

  • History of Program. How long has this program been offered?
  • Duration. How long does the program last? What works best for you, shorter length like 3 weeks and more intense study or longer period of 9 months or something in between.
  • Location. Where do you want to live while immersed in self-study that will serve you best. How will you be the least distracted? Living at home or a residential destination program?
  • Mission of School. Are you in alignment with the overall mission of what the yoga school offers? What is the overall teaching intention for the program?
  • Type of Yoga. Are you interested in only the asana and not meditation, mantra, or other sacred  practices (including energy medicine.) Choose wisely so it meets your expectations.
  • Size of Program. Do you learn best as one of 200 students, 40 students or fewer than 20?

Most of all think about what it is YOU want out of the program? 

ABOUT ALCHEMY OF YOGA:
If you want to only know how to practice and teach triangle pose then there are other programs that excel at that. If you are interested in your OWN self-development, for the best teachers are those that know their authentic selves, then we are a great fit! We have 11 years of history in offering our program 21 times. We continue to improve our accelerated learning methods to help our tribe members grow most easily.

Our focus is YOU. Not so much triangle pose.

We concentrate on the People part of our program. Of course you’ll get the techniques but its really the difference between emphasizing the person doing the pose or the pose itself as more important than the person. We choose YOU.

OVERVIEW OF ALCHEMY OF YOGA
1. EARTH: Foundational Alchemy – Rooting into Yourself & Manifestation
2. WATER: Emotional Alchemy – Tapping into Your Potential and Living in Possibility
3. FIRE: Physical Alchemy – Discovering Your Optimal Performance
4. AIR: Mental Alchemy – Unlearning the Obstacles to Your Happiness
5. ETHER: Spiritual Alchemy –Transformation into Living & Teaching Yoga

WHY CHOOSE ALCHEMY OF YOGA? We are Soulful & Sensitive
Alchemy of Yoga is unique from other teacher training programs. While you will learn a great deal about intelligent alignment and how to teach asana safely, our self-development program is first and foremost a journey in self-discovery. You will learn how to unblock the obstacles to your happiness by tapping into your greatest potential and living from your highest self.

The Truth About Costa Rica

I know choosing a Yoga School is hard. It’s a best guess effort since until you have the experience you can’t say “exactly” for sure what it’s going to be like. I get that.

That’s why at Alchemy of Yoga we try our hardest to tell you the TRUTH about our program. We don’t play it safe giving you some generic outline. We want you to know we are different from other schools and more importantly WHY and HOW we are different. Then we leave it to you to listen to your heart and make the best decision knowing that your RYT200 is only the FIRST program you’ll experience, it won’t be the last yoga learning (I hope).

So here’s the thing…

There is a reason why we choose Blue Spirit in Nosara, Costa Rica year in and year out. And if one reason isn’t enough, we came up with 15!

  1. Monkeys are your alarm clock (sometimes they want you up and about at 4am!)
    Nosara is a Blue Zone meaning it is one of the healthiest places to live in the world
  2. Pristine beaches + super good swell for surfing
  3. Abundance of local fresh produce + the best avocados and pineapple I have ever devoured. Not to mention the coffee, ohhhhh the coffee!!
  4. Pollution almost doesn’t exist
  5. Costa Rica is one of the, if not THE most environmentally friendly countries in the world. Over 30% of it’s land is in reserve and over 90% of its electricity is through renewable resources.
  6. So much respect and love for protecting the incredible array of wildlife
  7. The amazing waterfalls that are so incredibly healing and purifying
  8. Strong connection and harmonization of all 5 elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. Perfect for healing and balancing the body’s energy.
  9. Nosara is a small town on the coast yet still immersed in jungle and vibrant greenery
  10. Because everywhere you go they answer “¿Cómo estás?” (How are you) with “Pura Vida” (pure life)
  11. Possibly the happiest and most friendly humans you’ll ever meet (Tico’s!)
  12. Our favourite hashtag at Alchemy of Yoga is #StillnessIsSexy, but something that may be even more sexy is salsa dancing…salsa dancing with a spanish speaking local? Oh my, it’s just too much!
  13. Warm tropical rain and crazy thunderstorms rolling in over the wild ocean! Ahhh pure bliss!!
  14. Followed by sunshine, always some sunshine (when we choose to go anyway
  15. All of these combined make up the most perfect environment for deep healing and Divine play (Lila).

Yoga offers serious benefits but we don’t have to take ourselves so seriously in receiving them. If you are looking for a program that is part vacation in a beautiful part of the world (Costa Rica) with enough downtime to enjoy it along with a program dedicated to YOUR Self-Development (through the medicine and ancient technology of Yoga Studies) then YOU found it July 30-Aug 20, 2016!

If you are looking for super serious, technique only, static masculine model, authoritarian, no time for fun learning atmosphere then this is NOT it.

HOW DOES ALCHEMY OF YOGA WORK?

Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for two-hundred hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives and expanding consciousness into radical authenticity.

The result is something beyond words. It is, as best as I can explain it, the Alchemy of Yoga. The Yoga Sutras (Chapter 2, Verse 1) explains how the Alchemy of Yoga actually works:

“Tapas svadhaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga.”

This sutra is translated to explain that yoga helps us transform ourselves on three levels:

  1. Physical Alchemy – Tapas
  2. Mental Alchemy – Svadhaya
  3. Spiritual Alchemy – Ishvara Pranidhana

Physical Alchemy – Tapas: Ignites the changes we want to make in our lives. It is about the getting fired up and passionate. Literally it means heating the body through moving and breathing in the vinyasa.

Mental Alchemy – Svadhaya: While we are following the discipline of tapas and engaging in physical practice to help move our stuck energy we are watching ourselves. In yoga we study the self to learn about the self. Here the mental alchemy is through self-observation. We witness what is going on in our thoughts, what are we thinking. We tune in to our intuition to enhance clarity and harmony between what we think, say and do. We remember to remember who we really are. Through this, our ego softens from being I centered to seeing our interconnectedness to all things, people, nature, energies. We humbly realize our nature of union in this interweb.

Spiritual Alchemy – Ishvara Pranidhana: As we are doing and watching, we let go of the ego of judgment. We move beyond wanting life to be different and begin to feel the surrender that allows what is being offered to mix together. We practice ishvara pranidhana as we trust the universal intelligence that hugs us from all directions to know what it is doing. Once we find this trust, we begin to believe that beauty and goodness are within us flowing non-stop. We understand that there is no reason to stop this flow for its natural current is to align with the current of grace that is everywhere outside us. Beauty becomes our way of life. Happiness becomes our natural alchemy once again.

What are you? What am I? Intersecting cycles of water, earth, air and fire, that’s what I am, that’s what you are.

‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬ 200HR Yoga Teacher Training with Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach

WATER — blood, lymph, mucus, sweat, tears, inner oceans tugged by the moon, tides within and tides without. Streaming fluids floating our cells, washing and nourishing through endless riverways of gut and vein and capillary. Moisture pouring in and through and out of you, of me, in the vast poem of the hydrological cycle. You are that. I am that.

EARTH — matter made from rock and soil. It too is pulled by the moon as the magma circulates through the planet heart and roots suck molecules into biology. Earth pours through us, replacing each cell in the body every seven years. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, we ingest, incorporate and excrete the earth, are made from earth. I am that. You are that.

AIR — the gaseous realm, the atmosphere, the planet’s membrane. The inhale and the exhale. Breathing out carbon dioxide to the trees and breathing in their fresh exudations. Oxygen kissing each cell awake, atoms dancing in orderly metabolism, interpenetrating. That dance of the air cycle, breathing the universe in and out again, is what you are, is what I am.

FIRE — Fire, from our sun that fuels all life, drawing up plants and raising the waters to the sky to fall again replenishing. The inner furnace of your metabolism burns with the fire of the Big Bang that first sent matter-energy spinning through space and time. And the same fire as the lightning that flashed into the primordial soup catalyzing the birth of organic life. Gaia Meditation by #‎JohnSeed‬ and ‪#‎JoannaMacy‬
